Sometimes I get fixated on random things that I'd like to find at a thrift store or vintage market. Right now I'm on the hunt for some type of little decorative vest to wear over t-shirts or dresses. So far, I haven't had any luck at all. So... I've turned my attention to Ebay to see what I can uncover. The real trick on Ebay seems to be knowing exactly what words to use in the search. After many attempts at searching with "decorative vest", "embroidered vest" and "beaded vest" I finally figured out the magic word. I searched "folk vest" and came up with exactly what I've been looking for. Apparently these pieces are quite collectable and go for pretty high prices on Ebay so I haven't placed a bid. I guess I'll have to keep searching.
